Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Sustainable innovation forms the basis for the new solutions of and opportunities for the future although it has not yet achieved an established programmatic policy position. The CASI project has developed a set of tools, which can strengthen the development of sustainable innovation policy. This set of tools includes a data bank, a citizen engagement methodology, citizen agendas and a framework for sustainable innovation. This policy brief reviews and showcases how these SI tools can be used when strengthening sustainable innovation policy.

In Belgium, during a policy dialogue, participants identified the policy need to create space for and valorize participation to innovate. The CASI tools that facilitate a co-creative process and hence enable shared and complex leadership, in addition to recognize participants’ (or community members’) contribution seem to be most promising.
